A Big Sister’s Gift to the Myocarditis Foundation
Little Brother:
Mark Ryan Summers was a
17-year-old high school senior
set to graduate that year, Class
of 2012. He was into
everything tech and was
amazing with a computer. He
loved playing card games with
his friends and was the best
son and brother his family
could ask for.
Mark wasn’t feeling well for a
few days, so on Tuesday
February 7th his mom took him
to the ER because he was
complaining of some chest pain
along with just feeling sick.
They did an EKG, and were told
that everything was good. The
ER sent him home with the
advice of taking some cold
meds and Tums.

Myocarditis Following COVID Vaccine - KNOWLEDGE NURTURES HOPE
  F O U N D A T I O N

Dear Friend of the Myocarditis Foundation,
This past year we have had a flood of visitors to our website looking for information on myocarditis as well as a large
increase in emails and phone calls into the office for information that they can’t obtain anywhere else.
We pride ourselves not as a “donation” based website, but as the most current, relevant information and help site. We do
not ask for donations as others so often do such as…”If you liked what you have learned, please consider making a
donation to ….”.
The Myocarditis Foundation website is packed with information, and we would hope that people would understand that the
only way we can continue to provide help this way to those that reach out for it is through donations.
We don’t have any other form of revenue other than a few corporate grants that we solicit for various specific events, and
those are not guaranteed.
If we had even a dollar from everyone that visits our website, we would be so much more secure in ensuring that we could
continue to do what we do, for the thousands that need us.
Perhaps this has happened to you recently or in the past?
When people are lucky enough to be given the diagnosis of myocarditis and discharged home, they always comment that
they do not receive much information at all, just to “take it easy”.
Then they go to the computer and type in myocarditis. They find us at the Myocarditis Foundation, our website, email, and
phone number. They so frequently tell us that they have learned more from us and our website than they have from the
doctor or the hospital.
Sadly, the state of our economy after the COVID Pandemic has hurt our donation numbers and the dollar amounts of them
as well. We are asking this year, if you could spare even a small amount as a donation on a monthly recurring basis, not only
would it help keep our mission going but it would help those thousands of people who seek out the information and help
that they so desperately need about myocarditis while they are going through it.

                                      Please remember these statistics:
                  Myocarditis is the 3rd leading cause of Sudden Death
                     in Children & Young Adults and accounts for
                         45% of Heart Transplants in the U.S.
             We’ve lost too many to this dreaded disease…please help us stop this.
                                            Please be there for us,
                                             for those that suffer,
                              and for the families of those that have succumbed.
     To continue our commitment to battling myocarditis, & bringing a 24/7 service response, we need your help.
                             Myocarditis Foundation is recognized as a Platinum level charity.
               I hope you will consider making-a-donation today to support our ongoing efforts.
                                                     THANK YOU!
